Sixth Form Vision

The MNSP Sixth Form is an educational community that aspires for quality outcomes and experiences for all of our students. We have the highest aspirations and work to guarantee the best possible academic experience, combined with exciting and extensive enrichment opportunities. 

There is a purposeful atmosphere in our dedicated Post 16 Centre that encourages hard work and high attainment. Our committed and approachable team creates a supportive platform for young people to succeed both academically and personally. Our experienced tutors mentor each and every student, getting to know them as individuals,  so no-one gets lost in the crowd.

It is our mission to ensure that each and every student is prepared for life after Sixth Form, be that university, employment or a high level apprenticeship. We thrive on supporting our students’ aspirations and constantly aim to inspire, challenge and support them to achieve their goals. With their own hard work and the commitment of our team, our students achieve amazing things. 

Outside the classroom we offer a wealth of activities and societies for students to join. We provide our students with experiences they need to develop into confident young people who can make the most of life’s challenges and opportunities.
